A batch of new screenshots for the upcoming Ghostbusters game have been released, and rather than tell you were to see them, I decided to post the above video interview which ends up running them as a nice slideshow. There’s also some good news in there, although it comes close to the end: all the original ‘busters will voice their videogame counterparts, including Bill Murray; Zuul will use pieces of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man to make marshmallow dogs; and best of all, original Ghostbusters nemesis William Atherton will repirse his dickless role. Yay! Oh, and Kotaku says Wii owners will be able to hook up a Nintendo DS to the Wii game as a PKE Meter. I can’t believe this game sounds as good as it does.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
